Open Day a Success for All

Open Day a Success for All

August 29, 2017

Residents and local groups from across the Lisburn Castlereagh area attended the recent open day at the Bridge Community Centre in Railway Street, Lisburn to enjoy the activities on offer in this centrally located community facility.

The Deputy Mayor, Councillor Hazel Legge, who attended the open day, said: “It was lovely to see residents of all ages enjoy our Open Day.  The Bridge was full of the sound of babies, children and adults talking and laughing as they took part in the many activities on offer.  The day was very family orientated and the while the adults got information on their health & wellbeing and availed of the free hand, neck and back massages the children enjoyed the Bricks4Kidz, face painting and dress up photo booth.

“I would like to thank the health organisations who attended the event and took the time to chat with our residents to offer advice and health checks.  The skin scanner, body composition analysis and diabetes risk assessments were popular; and I am very sure gave residents an insight into how they can simply work to improve their health.  May I congratulate everyone who exhibited at the event for their part in making it a success,” concluded Councillor Legge.

The Bridge Community Centre has a number of rooms available for local groups to use.  For more information please contact the Bridge Community Centre on 028 9244 7713 or email: bridge.community@lisburncastlereagh.gov.uk
